I'm pretty sure this top is from H&M's "Marimekko" range - my mother brought it back from London this year. I've worn it quite a bit, the fabric is a soft jersey. This isn't something I would normally buy, in fact i'm sure it wouldn't have received a second glance from me but strangely it has become quite a regular.
P.S - there's a bird on my shoulder - ar ar!!

All Time Favorite Books................

What are people's favorite books? I'm always interested to hear about new stuff or an author i've never heard of. My interests are very mixed and varied.

Books I have loved over the years are:

The Secret History - Donna Tartt

The Magus - John Fowles

Still Life with Woodpecker - Tom Robbins

The Virgin Suicides - Jeffrey Eugenides
I'm only covering novels here, so tell me what your favorites are.

Op-Shop Score.......

Cute shoes and a floral bow tie for $3. I cannot complain :)

I find this ridiculously funny and I'm sure anyone who's watched "Summer Heights High" would concur.

Teddi of California...........

This floral delight hails from St.Vinnies on Sydney Rd. The sleeves are much longer, I've rolled them up and safety pinned them to the shoulder seam and tucked this under my bra-strap and used a belt to cinch the waist which isn't visible. I'll need to get the needle and thread out as Teddi needs something a little more permanent than safety pins!! I wonder if Teddi really is from California.........
Anyway, I fell in love with the pattern; it's a lovely explosion of colour and i'm not usually a floral kinda lady but this was screaming for my attention :)

Welcome to Lalor

A couple weeks back we decided the weather was lovely and so took a stroll around picturesque Lalor :)
